JOY FLOWERS CONTI, Chief District Judge.
On February 24, 2015, Manuel Gonzalez ("Petitioner") filed with the Court a Petition for Writ of Habeas, challenging the conditions of his confinement. In accordance with the Magistrate Judge's Act, 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1), and Rules 72.C and 72.D of the Local Rules of Court, all pretrial matters were referred to United States Magistrate Judge Lisa Pupo Lenihan.
On May 8, 2015, Magistrate Judge Lenihan entered a Report and Recommendation wherein she recommended that the Petition be dismissed as failing to assert a cognizable claim under habeas corpus.
